Thank you for the answers and the offer to look at it. I have found a High Power gentleman within an hours drive.

Hello Ray,

Apparently someone tried to shorten the take-up on this gun and Not knowing what they were doing - they made a real mess outta things! And they attempted to do a trigger job as well and they messed up the sear & hammer - not beyond repair, but really messed up, ie. a mile of creep with lots of hard pulling.

The worst thing they did was to the frame (or the slide did it because the trigger lever was so high above the frame rail) but the shoulder-block that the trigger lever rides against was bent way back towards the magazine well. Luckily though, this HP has a forged frame and I was able to carefully work the shoulder back into place, and I strongly suspect that it would have sheared off on a later model HP w/cast frame.

This gun also suffers from the lowest setting sear that I've ever seen - and even after being properly set-up the over travel was still barely enough, so I went back in and gave it another .010" - .015" for the road.

Over all the gun turned out very nice and now Frank has himself a beautiful Silver Chrome with a clean breaking trigger - that actually works!

Thank you Bob for answering this post. Even if I remembered what was wrong I could not have explained it.
